Virginia Collaborative Professionals
Leesburg, Virginia 20175
My goal is to provide sensitive and respectful service to each client based on your individual and family interests, needs and goals. Family law – especially separation and divorce – are difficult, painful and stressful times for you and I strive to provide a safe and caring environment in which to resolve the issues you face. I have extensive litigation experience with family law issues and will litigate, if necessary. But I prefer to use the collaborative process to resolve separations and divorces.
I have a special interest in gray divorces – couples married over 20 years and over 50 years old. My goal is to help you through a major loss and to imagine options for a better future. The most successful divorce is the one in which you have a vision of where you want to go and your desire to use the divorce process to move toward that goal.
The collaborative process is based on an agreement between the spouses, not to litigate, to totally disclose needed information, and to make decisions as a team. The team is composed of clients and professionals: lawyers, mental health coaches, and financial neutrals. The collaborative process allows for and encourages creative solutions to your separation and divorce issues.
Please contact me to explore the best resolution options for your unique situation.
